If you had just a choice among C, Java-Gcj, and Mono, it wouldn't be very interesting. However, there are other choices.
Most people have no idea how many of the packages they run are written in C++, because (unlike Java) there's no need to know what they are written in. You unpack them, and they just work. There are nice and safe bindings to C++ for all the GNOME libraries, and of course the KDE libraries start out that way.
